How you will be taught

The Business School is committed to student-centred and active teaching methods where teaching means more than the transmission of information.

Our teaching philosophy

To succeed, our graduates need the ability to renew their knowledge, to seek out new and relevant information, to analyse and evaluate changing business environments and to create innovative solutions. At the Business School we provide an educational experience that is:

  • Relevant – grounded in managerial and professional practice and research
  • Challenging – setting high expectations, whilst providing the support required for students to live up to these expectations
  • Stimulating – providing varied experiences which take students beyond conventional lectures and seminars and the knowledge of today
  • Internationally-oriented – preparing students for careers in increasingly integrated global organisations
  • Inclusive - where the contributions of all students, academic and support staff are valued
  • Satisfying – where students assess their experience as both worthwhile and enjoyable and where student dissatisfaction is responded to both rapidly and fairly
